. >>> more breaking news happening in israel. we have learned that israeli ground forces are on the move toward gaza. it comes after rockets were fired at tel aviv from within the palestinian controlled region. it is 9:00 p.m. in tel aviv. air raid sirens are sounding. this is the first fitime that's happened since the gulf worse. 30,000 reservists have been called up. aaron, this is ramping up quickly. when does it end? how does it get resolved? >> good question. it's really old wine in new bottles. in '08 and '09 israel and hamas went at each other. confrontation lasted three weeks. large parts of gaza were destroyed. israelis in the south spent better part of their lives in shelters. almost 1,400 palestinians were killed. so this could escalate. the reality that's being driven by a lot of jihadis in gaza using high trajectory rockets. the israelis i think in the run-up to elections are under great pressure from those southern communities to stop the source of this rocket fire. in the end, i know it is risky to make predictions, but i don't think that either hamas or the israelis have

militants will, in fact, pay for the blood that was shed in israel. is this sabre rattling? because the interest of israel is not to get into a real skirmish with gaza. >> the problem is that hamas now has a missile to reach tel aviv and that's unacceptable. that's a red line for israel. the israelis probably don't know how many they have. they don't know where they're located. therefore the attack is very complicated. you can't do frit the air. you'll have to go in on the ground. it's going to be bloody and miserable. the israelis would rather not do that. the palestinians want them not to do that. but hamas really has put itself in a position where it has a weapon that will compel the israelis either to step down or go to war. the israelis are giving every sign that they're going to war. >> if they go to war, though, that brings in also egypt, its new president supports hamas as well as iran. iran funds and arms hamas. so that doesn't seem like anything that israel would want to do. so at this point, where do you place the odds of there actually being a conflict? >> pretty high. f
